on tel aviv since 2006. tell us about what happened, the damage, and the victims? >> sure. they're calling it a terrorist attack, andrea, although not a suicide bombing. it is a commuter bus around lunch time today and at least a dozen people injured. several severely injured. and it's a very familiar sight as you know in this city and around israel but it had been quite a while since there was a bus bombing, since 2004. and it certainly puts people in this country on edge because unlike these rockets that have been coming into israel, that they've been very good at shooting down, this is an attack on the ground within the country and that is not something that people here have faced for a while and they are going to want reassurances in the face of this cease-fire and potential deals down the road, that this kind of thing will not happen. >> and, of course, israel still remains mobilized and that kind of mobilization comes at considerable costs. so, one question that we need to ask and that we can be following up on throughout this hour is whether or not they're pulling back, w

hymn standing with a bunch of mannequins they use as a firing range, three of them and then him as the fourth without his shirt on like the manny kins it wasn't meant to be sexual it was meant to be funny. it wasn't interpreted as anything inappropriate according to this person. as for the agent, now that his name is out there, it makes sense about why he called initially a congressman from washington because frederick hump fridays 16-year veteran of the cia, worked in washington state there in 1999, had a big patrol play in investigating the millennium bomb plot against the l.a. airport and he knew the congressman from washington, that he called because that congressman used to be the sheriff there it would make sense he would call that congressman here raentsecently he thought the investigation was stalled. details are falling into place. >> tell me about the house intelligence hearing today. trying to get more information about the benghazi events and general patreaus is meeting with lawmakers in the house and senate tomorrow. >> we are unable to know what is being said becau
overwhelmingly for nonmember status des price strong u.s. and israeli opposition, palestinian authority prime minister sa lem fay yesterday is here with us to react today. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. president obama took the show on road today. who are not impressed by the administration's opening budget officer. -- offer. joining me is kristen welker, and luke russert. first to you, the calculus in going to the suburbs of philadelphia, kristen, clearly he feels that the political play right now is better than the inside game that didn't work for him during the super committee negotiations, but can that backfire? >> right now the president feels as though he has a fair amount of leverage having won re-election so he's trying to build momentum on the road. remember, this is a tactic that worked for him during the payroll tax cut fight when he went out, took his case to the american people, so he is doing it once again today in hatfield, pennsylvania, a suburb of philadelphia, speaking at a toymaker and making the case that toymaker would be harmed. consumer confidence beg
leading the u.s. argument on the palestinian vote on symbolic, nonmembership in the general assembly. but there were hearings again on the hill. we'll talk to joe lieberman in a moment. what is state of play whether the president is sticking with her in he did quite the show of support during the cabinet meeting yesterday at a photo op. >> reporter: he has publicly maintained that show of support. officials say that despite the fact that susan rice continues to come under fire from a number of lawmakers, including those woman she met this week say they have more questions after having met with her, senior officials tell me the president is not turning away from her, that he is still holding her up as a high possibility as one of his choices for secretary of state. of course the meetings go on the investigation goes on. senior officials tell me the president is standing by her, not only publicly but privately. >> ruth there have been issued raised whether she was being attacked, criticized because she's a woman, african-american, whether that in fact would make it harder for the repub
carrying products between u.s. ports to fly under the u.s. flag, be built in the u.s., and be crude mostly be u.s. citizens the fact they're waiving that will hopefully expedite more fuel in here. what are they doing on the ground? trying to get the power to restored to gas stations that don't have power. you can't pump gas if you don't have power. power is restored to the terminals to get the fuel, of course, on to the trucks. that's a priority. now, there are trucks moving and there is gas here. the issue are those other two issues really kind of slowing things down and then by the way, we still have some of these huge massive refineries taken off-line trying to get them up and running but that could be a while as well. this part of the country consumes more oil, more gas, than any ear part of the country on a daily basis. it drinks it. they have goat this stuff moving not only to power cars but generators because of people, people don't have any electricity. they need generators to stay warm. let me tell you, andrea, it is cold. it was about 38 this morning at the moment we're about 49
still kind of disagree with the way this played out but the explanations that ambassador rice gave us helped us understand. instead, what we got coming out of it was, as you point out, i think, an upping of the ante, all three of those senators, ayotte, graham and mccain, all saying we're more troubled today than we were yesterday about susan rice and her role in the immediate aftermath of benghazi. one thing i would note, andrea, in the press conference afterward that you showed clips of, reporters to their credit repeatedly asked, so would you not vote to confirm her as secretary of state. would you not vote to confirm her as secretary of state. they dodged that question and didn't answer that question. so while it may look sort of bleak right now if you're a susan rice ally i'm not sure we should draw too many conclusions because you don't have hard nos coming out of these three. >> but they did get themselves out on a limb that's hard to get back off of. this statement from susan rice issued from the state department within the hour in the course of the meeting we explained that t
. whatavbout him? what tells us how he's going to govern? whether he will circle, whether he will shake up the cabinet. and most importantly reach out and do a better job ofg to get around or work with those opposing him# vigorously in congre? that's still the big $64,000 questif course the longer has to run for re-election again. he has to care about the fate of his party, who his successor is, but he's not going to have to spend the next four years in a handful of swing states four years hence. that could driving a little more aggressively, ta t more aggressive. but that didn't really work so well the first tim around. i really think the key question here actually,th the economy? imagi the economyction and we start to have a president takes credit ffor, peopl credit, he will takere of polit capital, might help next round of midterm ld decide the next term m than anything. as far as whether he reaches out or fights, the tone in that sp typical of what you would get in a speech like that and i think the jury is still a little out on how he's going to play it. >> fair point. what he said
politics.com, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc. >> greg, u.s. economics editor for the economist and "new york times" andrew ross sorkin, co-host of "squawk box" on cnbc. welcome all. first chris cizilla and mark halperin, the political side of this, chris, your reporting so far, we've seen speaker boehner today, what chuck schumer had to say, the president's expected to announce that he is inviting all of the leaders to the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff. >> right. i think what we've seen broadly is marking out of territory, with a strong emphasis on willing to work across the aisle. i don't expect president obama to go into specific detail of how he's going to get this done. i do, however, expect kind of this, you know, the election is now over, let us come together tone. and to be honest, i think he does have a stronger hand in this, than maybe even he thought he might have. simply because of the election results. could be looking at 332 electoral victory, larger than i thought, democrats picking up seats in the senate, picking up some seats in the h
president of egypt being the prime mover here, pressured by the u.s., but bringing together all sides? i'm not sure that ayman can hear us. we have a satellite delay. can we talk about the diplomacy from the standpoint of hamas and the muslim brotherhood? >> yeah. andrea, these talks have been now under the auspices of the egyptian government but more specifically under the au spis sis of intelligence officials. they can meet with israel and the palestinian factions. it's unlikely that president m mahmoud morsi was going to sit down with any envoys. he will be heading back to cairo tomorrow to meet with hillary clinton. egyptian officials involved or familiar with them have been telling nbc news this is unlikely to be a long-term truce. this is more likely to be a cessation of hostilities in the short term to pave the way for longer discussions about the fundamental issues as to why this persistent problem keeps coming up, the siege on gaza, rockets into southern israel and outstanding issues. what we can say so far is that all indications suggest that there will be a truce at some poi
boxer. senator, thanks so much for joining us. the gender gap has been a big issue, the women's vote has been a big issue among voters throughout this campaign. let's talk about the gender gap. the president has sort of narrow lead among women. it's no longer the double-digit lead that he had. but is this enough for him to carry him, despite the disadvantage that he has with male, men voters, especially white men? >> first of all there are more women voters than men voters. so when he's leading women by eight and romney is leading men by seven, i think the math works in our favor. but here's the other interesting statistic -- among the undecides, the few that are left, most of them are women. and i think as women look at this, whether they're number one issue is jobs, and they look at the latest jobs reports, do you know that you probably do, that barack obama, under his leadership, we've created more private-sector jobs in the last couple of months than george w. bush in eight years? and this president was handed the worst recession since the great depression. and we're coming out of it
i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> john mccain is now softening his opposition to her possible nomination as secretary of state. >> i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took, and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> we'll talk to former bush national security adviser steve hadley. >>> plus a new wave against president morsi. >>> and two indianapolis colts cheerleaders save their hair in support of their coach's fight against leukemia. >>> good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. congress is back. grover norquist's tax pledge could be history. and all eyes are now focusing on house republicans as talks to avoid going over that so-called fiscal cliff are picking up steam. joining me now, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc and ruth marcus, columnist and editorial writer for the "washington post." to you, mark, what is your read about what we've been hearing the last couple of day
us from there. mark, you're in a home there on staten island. tell me what you're seeing on the ground and how people are coping and whether fema is finally arriving on the scene today. >> yeah. fema is here. fema is here, federal agents set up in a command center. this is ocean breeze, sort of a forgotten community in between. south beach and midland beach the waters receded, debris cleared. i want to give you a tour. this was a home of ten, eight children, mom and dad called this home. this was the living room. you can see the signs of family. a doll, winnie the pooh, walk you down the hall where this used to be a closet, there was a bathroom here. now covered in sea water and mud and muck and the stench here is incredible. jackie, want to talk to you real quick. your nieces and nephews, 9 through 21 live here. folks here need help. are you getting the help? >> nobody is here. nobody. they just showed up after you showed up. that's it. it's terrible. look. nothing. >> this used to be the backyard. there used to be a patio there. now it's someone else's trampoline, const
don't need you to tell us there's a hurricane. we have windows. >> message delivered. good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. no cease-fire and at least 30,000 israeli re servists perhaps more are amassed at the gaza border. surrounding roads have been closed and the soldiers cell phones have been confiscated to preserve battlefield secrecy. since the pace of hostilities escalated last wednesday more than 500 hamas rockets have fallen in israel. israeli air strikes have killed at least 90 gazans. nbc's richard engel, stephanie gosk and ayman mohyeldin are in the region reporting the latest from gaza to tel aviv. first richard engel in gaza, what is the latest from your vantage point and on the cease-fire negotiations? >> we are hearing that there are serious cease-fire negotiations going on right now. when you're on the ground here in gaza it doesn't exactly feel that way. there have been many air strikes today, a media building was killed. israel is sort of -- [ inaudible ] on hamas leader or one palestinian militant at a time. sources who are involved in the israeli/pa
and it was probably his best speech of the whole campaign season. what have we learned about him? what tells us how he's going to govern? whether he will widen his circle, whether he will shake up the cabinet. and most importantly reach out and do a better job of trying to get around or work with those opposing him vigorously in congress? >> yeah. andrea, i think that's still the big $64,000 question. but of course the key thing that has changed is barack obama no longer has to run for re-election again. he has to care about the fate of his party, who his successor is, but he's not going to have to spend the next four years calculating every move in terms of how it's going to play in a handful of swing states four years hence. that could translate into driving a little more aggressively, taking the fight to republicans a little more aggressive. but that didn't really work so well the first time around. i really think the key question here actually, andrea, is what happens with the economy? i mean, you can imagine a scenario where the economy gains some traction and we actually start to have a bona fid

who have gotten into some difficulty through these investigations. joining us at the table, pete williams, our justice correspondent, kristen well sker, white house correspondent, michael isikoff. >> pete, first to you. we're seeing that jay carney is referring all messages and information and all questions to the justice department. you cover the justice department and the fbi. how did they get into this investigation now of general allen? they were looking at jill kelley's e-mails presumably because she complained about harassment, potential harassment about threatening e-mails that were anonymous and that, of course, led to paula broadwell who led to david petraeus and the relationship that was then uncovered. how did general allen get into this mix? >> your question has the answer in it. basically, jill kelley complained she was getting harassing e-mails. the fbi eventually found who was sending the e-mails, but that caused them to look at both the e-mails that jill kelley was receiving and the ones that paula broadwell was sending. in the midst of looking at the e-mails jill
ohio will have the irregularities ties to put us i the late night or beyond. if mitt romney doesn't win virginia there's a path but not a great one. >> which counties to both of you, where in virginia would you be looking to lynchburg? down to the tiedwater area, norfo norfolk? >> can i -- >> there are swin counties but virginia is a case where swing counties and also counties where one side or the other must run up a big score. if they're going to have a chance to win. the counties outside washington, around washington, are the most important in terms of the swings. >> and also for president obama -- i was going to say, chris cizilla. >> yeah. >> the richmond area, richmond city is very important for president obama to run up big returns. >> president obama, northern virginia, richmond city, hampton roads, large african-american population. i would say mark is exactly right in terms of virginia is a battleground all across the state. two counties that i keep an eye on, maybe just because they're close to where i live, but prince william and louden, these are suburban washington, d.c. c
